Be of good cheer! Accept that there are just some vegetables that grow better commercially than you can grow yourself. Celeriac is one of them.

Sorry Joe your link doesn't work.

The swifts have been particularly noisy round the house the last three days. I wondered if the eggs had hatched. They mobbed me when I stood in the Velux window to watch them. Close enough to hear and feel them fly past

please help

Are you muddling home-made compost with shop-bought compost? They are not the same. It must have cost a fortune to lay down 1 foot of shop-bought compost.

Shop-bought compost contains very little fertilizer, not that such small sunflowers need fertilizer yet.

The main thing with sunflowers is to protect them from slugs.

A large expanse of grass to play on and somewhere to build a den. That's what children want! I don't think they care one jot about the planting.
